not just a serious thinker, but a serious doer come to share his insights with us and, perhaps, to provide even an hour of the ability, um, to not watch a negative ad and to watch a very important presentation. i'm not sure, are you introducing aaron, or am i? oh, haleh's back to introduce aaron. i will just say that he is an enormously-valued colleague at the wilson center. his voice on the middle east and many other topics is heard around the world. efraim says he's met multiple times, i guess, on this visit with aaron. i said once is enough, but apparently not. and aaron, um, really does dazzle us with his insights into the middle east, and they were on display just a couple days ago in another forum that we held. so haleh's coming back, i think, to defend my attack on aaron, is that what's next? >> to complement.
